RNC Pens Inaccurate Immigration Reform Resolution

August 16, 2013

Gotta love the spin. The Republican National Committee created a resolution calling on Congress to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill.  Unfortunately, the proposal that they set forth is garbage. It is filled with spin and typical GOP rhetoric. It is also less than honest and truthful.

The resolution claims that "a majority of Americans support legal immigration and oppose any form of amnesty." Apparently the RNC forgot to check the most recent polls that show that a majority of Americans support a pathway to citizenship for undocumented aliens. In fact, an August 2013 poll of Republicans showed that 2/3 support a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented aliens. A July 2013 poll shows that more Americans favor the Democratic view on immigration reform rather than the Republican view.

The RNC supports a nation of the haves and have-nots. It proposes a country that boasts a permanent underclass, including the innocent DREAMers who were brought to the country as undocumented children by their parents. Their message to the immigrants is that Americans want to reap all of the benefits of cheap laborers who fill the jobs that no American wants to do, but they do not support giving them any benefits or rights in exchange for their hard work.

It is almost as if the RNC patterned their plan after the ill-conceived systems that has kept the legal, longterm, foreign workers oppressed, disenfranchised and second-class. Just like the CNMI's failed immigration plan, the whole resolution is a sickening insult - undemocratic, un-American and inhumane.

If the objective of the Republican Party was to increase their unpopularity, then it looks like they have succeeded.

Democratic National Committee spokesperson Michael Czin said:

 “It’s disappointing that the RNC has yet again come out against commonsense immigration reform with a path to citizenship,” Not only is their position contrary what the vast majority of Americans want – it’s bad for the economy. Data shows that a path to citizenship will boost the GDP, increase total income for all Americans and generate more revenue for both states and the federal government. Reince Priebus and the Republican Party just don’t get it – they’re on the wrong side of the issues and the American people know it.”

Securing our borders is the first order of business - reduce illegals by 90% then start the pathway to Citizenship for some and only some of them. No criminal record, mandatory drug testing and they must pay a penalty (all of these supported by Obama) Oh, and learn English - that is the primary language spoken, written and understood in the USA - Obama.

Commonsense Republicans want anyone who is going through the LEGAL immigrant process to be given absolutely top priority for Green Cards and a pathway - NOT South and Central Americans who jumped the fence. This is total insanity and makes no sense whatsoever. Pelosi and Miller have remained in office only because they support illegal aliens receiving free schooling, medical care, housing, social security and nearly all other benefits that Americans must work for. Crime is rampant in inner cities with large illegal immigrant populations (look it up). Why Democrats support illegals getting a blanket amnesty baffles the mind. These are not "immigrants" who actually offer something (not all) to society. The vast majority become instant welfare cases and that madam is a fact.

2:37 You are so far from the facts that I do not even have time to address them all! Here's a fact - nonresidents do not even qualify for welfare. Please stop the spin and get educated. Pelosi and Miller are in office because of their accomplishments for their constituents and our country.

The language thing is a whole other issue that concerns cultural views and personal identity.
